In the heart of lively Union Square, budget seekers appreciate the affordable and well-maintained rooms. The friendly staff can assist with sightseeing arrangements.
YOU SHOULD KNOW The neighborhood gets loud after dark, so light sleepers should bring ear plugs.
Rooms feature somewhat generic wooden furniture, earth-toned linens, flat-screen TVs, and dark-wood beds.
Each room includes a small but private bathroom. Request a bathtub if that's important to you.
Guests gather in the mornings and afternoons in the small sitting room, or adjacent business center.
The tiny exercise room features cardio machines and free weights.
The onsite White Horse Tavern and Restaurant features hearty steak and chicken dinners.
Sidle up to the bar at White Horse Tavern for an after dinner glass of sherry.
The hustle of downtown makes traveling by car challenging. There are plenty of pricey parking garages nearby, but most opt to leave the car behind. Walkers appreciate the proximity to Union Square, the Financial District, SoMa, Tenderloin, Chinatown and more. Hop on the Muni bus, or cable car, both of which stop within a couple blocks. Also within a short walk (about 5-minutes) is the BART station which connects travelers to the San Francisco and Oakland Airports.
Enjoy California-inspired Hawaiian classics like kalua pork at Liholiho Yacht Club (2-minute walk). For a more casual meal, line up for ramen and tempura at Katana-Ya (5-minute walk).
For a martini overlooking the city lights, ascend Nob Hill and ride to the Top of the Mark (10-minute walk). If you prefer brews and sports, Golden Gate Tap Room (5-minute walk) is a fun place to sample local beers.
